Response to Rosa Luxemburg (Original post)

Sun Jul 5, 2015, 12:59 AM

26. That is fine, and most folks well agree, however, as long as Congress has the make up they

have, I don't care who is President, it isn't going to happen.

I remember the ranting and raving regarding the ACA because "Obama would not give us a public option". The blue dogs, and the republicans were never going to let it happen. They had two years to get something out, and they did. Many at DU were and are still extremely upset with the President about that, yet ironically I have not seen anyone tell us how they could have gotten single payer through, not only then, but now where the make up of Congress is even more twisted.

All the power to Bernie, but single payer is going to take while. Hell, even Vermont couldn't get it started when they tried.
